We Thought that Women in Tech in the States had it Bad, Check out What this Lady Did at a Tech Event in Mexico

I came across this post today while sifting through some posts on women in tech and had to share this. 

Here is the original article written about misogyny in Mexico's Tech scene. 

We all know that pictures speak volumes and honestly these 2 photos really don't need any captions. This is sad for all women all over the world and I feel bad for the lady that was captured here in these images. She probably doesn't even realize that what she is doing by wearing a QR code on her butt is a bad thing. She probably thinks that it is cute, or cool due to the way that men think about women in Mexico. Screen_Shot_2014-07-22_at_5.15.40_PM-830799-edited

So next time you look around your office or a tech event here in the US just think about her. Think about how lucky we are not to have things like this happening here. Or at least I hope things like this aren't happening in the US.


Have you ever seen anything like this at a conference or at an event in the tech space?
